Book Description

18 July 2012
Christmas comes and goes. The seasons carry the Crowanhawk family through the next year, their lives filled with the search for Anna. A second Christmas passes without their sister, and Spring arrives. Despite the words of Cernunnos, the search for Anna seems ever more futile. But a chance discovery of an ancient book sends Jason and Kylie back through time, hope burning in their hearts once more. Unable to follow, unaware of the childrens’ disappearance until it is too late, Gobswistle and Etain begin their own quest, to find the Anguinum that Myrrdin left in Kilneuair. As Jason and Kylie travel through lands of myth and legend, and as Gobswistle and Etain travel through lands of cars, trains and televisions, none are aware their separate quests are leading them inexorably to the same point…

More About the Author

Robert Franks was born in norfolk, England. His father was a dairy farmer, his mother a nurse and his sister a frequent sparring partner. Brought up in the middle of the Norfolk countryside, he grew up with JRR Tolkein, Anne Macaffrey and Alan Dean foster for company. Oh, and 12 dachshunds, a welsh collie, two pekinese, a great dane, two bassett hounds, innumerable farm cats, a rabbit hutch of both rabbits and guineapigs,a golden pheasant, some chickens and a rather cantankerous old goose.
He wrote from an early age, completing his first full length novel at the age of 15. It was never published, but certain characters never went away, and have resurfaced in his most recent books, The Glass Apple Series.
He worked as a shop manager for many years, and his writing was put, for the main part, to one side.
The first three chapters of The Glass Apple were finished way back in 1997, but again work took priority. In the winter of 2009, he was made redundant when his shop was closed. Since then he has returned to his first love, writing.
The first three books of the Glass Apple series (The Glass Apple; Spider's Web; Song of the Shaman) are all already available in both paperback (via Amazon, Waterstone, Barnes & Noble, WHSmith, Angus & Robertson) and kindle form, with the 4th (Legacy of the Abandoned One) due for release 2014. The 5th book, Child of Mount Pelion, is scheduled for release 2015/16

5.0 out of 5 stars Another epic adventure to get lost in! 25 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again we are taken on a journey back in time. This time we are thrown far beyond the realms of the history books, to the time when sabre toothed tigers roamed the Badlands of what would eventually become America. We are only travelling with Jason and Kylie this time, having left Ethelbert and Etain behind. The children however are joined on their quest by an unusual ally. Ant is very in your face, very OCD, and very very camp. The ancient ones left at home also acquire a new companion in the form of a bottle blonde, busty and brash American woman to help them through their own quest. As you would expect from a book in the Glass Apple series there is a good balance of danger, adventure and humour.

The tone of the tale has altered again, reflecting the landscape of the story. There is a feeling of space, of time, and of things coming together. Yet unfortunately, the more things start coming together the more they start falling apart. In both timelines there are twists and turns which take us into different directions. faces from the past appear in both worlds, offering insight and advice, adding to the different layers of the tale being told.

I found that this book in the series took on a further narrative change, the writing style though still very descriptive seems to have in a way matured somewhat. There is no feeling that this part of the story was rushed, it feels organised and more structured. it flows nicely and it would appear that many of the errors noted in the first two books have been resolved. As before we are left hanging on the final page, only this time there is more than one cliff hanger to content with. I look forward to book four 'Legacy of the Abandoned one' with eager anticipation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 13 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the previous two books I eagerly awaited this and was NOT disappointed.. Got really caught up in the twisting, edge of seat story many time and was reluctant to put it down.. great story, fantastic characters that connect very well with the reader. most enjoyed and im looking forward to the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Song Of The Shamen 13 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is the third in the Glass Apple series and takes place a bout 18 months after book 2.

Anna is still missing in time and Jason, Kylie and Jason's friend the librarian Ant travel back to early America, hoping to find her (although Ant doesn't really want to).

Gobswhistle and Etain remain in the here and now with another new character, the American Emma who is missing her husband and son.

For me, the sections with Gobswhistle et al were the highlight of this book as they seemed to be followed by carnage, chaos, destruction and general mayhem but in a mostly comical way.

The threat of The Medb is still there and there is a nice twist at the end that sets both story strands up nicely for book four, and for me book four cannot come soon enough.

An excellent addition to an excellent series.
